    Formula to Match a record from two tables and return its value

    Hello folks,

    Ive got two tables on different tabs. I need to locate a record from one table accroding to a project code reference and then return the value in a certain column of the table.

    This is what i have so far1

    =(INDEX(Planner,MATCH(Forecast[@[Project]:[Project]],Planner[[Project]:[Project]],0),Planner[Budget Cost]))

    it finds the record row, however i cant return the column number. Ive tried adding column() but the table doesnt start on A so returns the wrong number. I know this is simple but its driving me mad.... please help.

    Thanks

    James

    Hi James,

    I didn't think Excel Structured References worked until Excel 2007. See

    Also are all the table column headings different? It looks like you might have confusion between some being the same word.
    One test is worth a thousand opinions.
